Historically, Arizona’s economy is known for the Five C’s: Copper, Cattle, Cotton, Citrus and Climate.

As time goes by, we experience changes to our economy, culture and livelihood. The future will continue to depend on innovative and gifted minds to lead the way. Arizona has such a diverse population with so many thought processes, that we want to add a Sixth C for Arizona: Creativity!

An Opportunity To Showcase Arizona Kids’ Creative Talents

In an unprecedented move, nationwide, schools were shut down for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. With more than six weeks left of schooling, school districts, parents and students had to swiftly switch gears to finding a way to learn from home. This looks differently from school to school, and even student to student. Some of the most brilliant minds would be frustrated with online learning – everyone learns differently, so if in-person is your gig…this is a struggle. And that’s okay.

What is not a struggle for our Gifted and Talented children is knowing their strengths and where their interest lies. What makes our kids so unique is the talent they exhibit in one or many areas.

There is a greek word that means to do something with passion, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention. Meraki is to put your soul into something, to put a little bit of yourself into it, be it singing, dancing, painting, writing, coding, creating music, building, discovering, baking, you name it.

So AAGT wants to know, what have you created with Meraki lately?

Students, ask your parents or teachers to submit photos, documents of your writing, clips of a song you wrote/sang, video of your performance…whatever you have created to showcase on our website and on social media.
